WHEN IS MY BABY COMING? HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR DUE DATE.

Use our Due Date Calculator

You can use our due date calculator to find out when your due date is. As you’ll learn later, this will only give you an approximation of when your baby will arrive.

What is a Due Date?

The medical world refers to it as EDD which is short for the estimated date of delivery. You’re not likely to deliver on that due date – more accurately it should be called an estimate and a better way would be “EDD” or estimated date of delivery.

Last Menstrual Period

Simply add 40 weeks, or 280 days, to that date—and voila! This will be when you’re due.

Date of Ovulation (Conception Date)

If you’re using an average 28-day cycle and your cycles are pretty consistent in length, then you’ll know when your baby was conceived. By knowing your ovulation date, you can also calculate an estimated due date by adding 266 days to it.

IVF Transfer Date

– IVF 3-Day Transfer Date – You can calculate your pregnancy due date by adding 263 days to the last day of your IVF transfer. This will give you an exact figure so that we know when it is safe for your family, friends, and coworkers to start getting ready! – IVF 5-Day Transfer Date – You can calculate your due date by adding 261 days to the last day of your IVF, that’s when you’ll have a baby. At least, that’s if you’re going by the book.

Ultrasound Scan

Ultrasounds measure all sorts of measurements such as crown rump length, abdominal circumference – everything needed in order to determine how far along you are. Once you know how far along you are, you can better plan and forecast out your due date.

How Accurate are Due Date Estimations?

According to the Perinatal Institute, a non-profit organization, an EDD is rarely accurate – in fact, a baby is born on its predicted due date just 4% of the time.

Menstrual Cycles Can Differ

Women typically experience a menstrual cycle every 28 days, but there are many factors that can affect the length of their cycles.

Why a Pregnancy Calculator Can Only Give an Estimate

The mystery of the birth process is one that goes all throughout human life. A baby’s development can be mysterious, as there are no set guidelines for when they will develop certain abilities like hearing or walking on their own.

Pregnancy Complications

What are the Stages of Pregnancy?

First trimester: This is the first three months of pregnancy and it’s when you will be most likely to feel some symptoms like nausea or fatigue.  Second Trimester: The second trimester is called a “golden time” because your baby’s brain, muscles, heart, and circulatory system are all developing while he or she is growing.  Third Trimester: The last part of pregnancy is the third trimester. It can be difficult because you are carrying more weight due to your growing baby and may not feel very comfortable

Can a Due Date Change?

Like we mentioned earlier, due dates aren’t set in stone.

Reasons why your due date may shift:

If your baby is noticeably smaller or larger than “the average,” then the doctor will be inclined to revise their estimations accordingly Irregular periods can throw off a pregnancy’s estimated length. Abnormal fundal height (size of uterus). Abnormal levels of proteins produced by your growing baby (Alpha-fetoprotein).

At this point, you should be getting regular prenatal checkups with your doctor or midwife that will help keep track of your pregnancy.
